    Oh yes dude,i think it should do the trick. I cant say more cause never tried ibanez a lot. But man for the music u are playing as well as if u wnna get dirty then i think this axe is cool. But i think u should think about the FR bridge cause down tuning will be a work out haha. go ahead dude.

    More than your guitar, its your amp as well as pedal/processor which will decide whether its suitable for classic rock or nu-metal.

    dont rush into ibanez...i did that and ended up screwed...make sure u get the guitar checked by some expert...my guitar seemed fine and all...there was just this tiny ding (which Venky , bangalore) said was a scratch and now that scratch is increasing in size...and my guitar has been giving problems non stop since July...if i was you...id wait 10 more days for the esps and pick up a 50 series....IMO stay away from ibanez

    ibanez is good well grg270 can work out good for classic rock but get a gud pedal/pro and a kewl amp don go fr strangers go fr a roland,marshall even if buy a small one it can be good on sound.....don go fr size by looking at strangers or anyone of its cheap counterparts get a gud quality amp

    hey dude the scratch on your guitar cant be generalised for the whole of iabnez. dude they are amazing guitars- How did you buy it?.
    It does not mean that if you get a ESP you wont find a crack. The crack could have happend at any point of time and dude to a lot of factors.
    Go and get the guitar checked from a pro and get it fixed. i think u wont have any problem.
    what problems do u face?

    i got it checked by 3 pros...and they all said its defective and i have to use my warranty........AND I SAID IN MY OPINION....and after what ive been through...no one should have such a time in there lives ever....i just dont want him to guy buy a DUD by accident and screw his life .....sorry for being harsh but when you pay 27k (my guitar) you expect some quality

    and the problems ive been facing on this piece of crap are:
    1.Floyd not setting because the springs were not getting tight...now thats fixed
    2.The nut saddle keeps moving even though its bolted on...because those idiots at ibanez have stuck a piece of wood under it to give it height.
    3.The neck keeps warping
    4.These cracks keep getting bigger
    5.Theres always a buzz on the frets (dont tell me to adjust the truss because i already got it done)

    ...........IN MY OPINION....Ibanez suck....at least there cheaper guitars do.....

    hey u cant say that all ibanez are like this - think its your bad luck.when did u get it and how? - Laneymaney.sorry abt this dude can u tell me where u got it?did u buy it in person?

    and amature123 - telling you ibanez are really nice guitars. if you need more suggestion - u look out side ibanez too - fender std. these are rock solid as far as i know(even ibanez is solid).

    What ever u do. please do go to the shop play the guitars u like and then decide as well as check on it see if its got any visible faults.ok. when u feel comfy then get it.

    there are quiet a few squire strat models here so check them all. u might get hold of something really nice.all the best.

    amateur where r u from?and r there any good guitar shops around you place. Cause i would keep saying please play the instrument before u decide on it.
    A cheaper guitar could sound much better then the ESPor the LTD. Its all in the make,finish and the final product.
    For laneymaney he has a problem finding a decent guitar shop so his best choice is to get it online. but for u i think if u have great guitar showroom and if they can get hold of guitars from different makers then please go check it out(play them)take your time and decided. ok! what ever your payin for do your best its all that matters.
